It's been ages since I did a Disneyland Resort column. But I'm back to bring you up to speed on the progress in Disneyland!
Now for those of you who may have forgoten, I changed my Disneyland Updates. The rumors and rebuttals are being scrapped in favor of actual news. I realized I don't want to be the type of person who "claims" to bring news, when really I am just speculating and spreading rumors.
First, the Park Hours for the entire month will be listed.
Second, any closures and/or refurbs will be noted.
Third, info about the general goings-on throughout the resort will be listed.
Fourth, pics! Due to my distance from Disneyland, I'll mostly have pics from internet freinds up.
With that out of the way, let's get started!

Comings, Goings, and Tidbits from around the Resortc
Yesterday, I recieved word that Lilo and Stitch Character Meal at the PCH Grill in the Paradise Pier Hotel will end December 11 and be replaced by the "Surf's Up! Breakfast With Mickey & Friends" breakfast. A new and updated menu will also be in place.
Troubador Tavern has also opened, featuring Bratworsts, baked potatoes, and drinks. It is located in Fantasyland near the Fantasyland Theatre.
After much speculation, many of you will be excited to learn that Great Moments With Mr. Lincoln will be returning on December 17. The show will not only feature the latest advancements in Audio-Animatronics, but the lobby of the Opera House will be connected to the new Disney Gallery. The fan favorite "Disneyland: The First 50 Magical Years" will still be playing in the lobby. I'll be back with a brand new update as soon as it opens!
Meanwhile, construction continues all around DCA. While Carsland and Little Mermaid are starting to see an expodential increase in construction, it's clear that World of Color is the prime attraction on Disney's plate right now. The bay is now completely full, and the vewing area is coming along nicely.
Due to the Thanksgiving holiday, I do not have any recent pictures to share. However, expect many pictures on January 5, 2010 when my next DLR Update can be seen.
Until then, this is PirateGuy with the Disneyland News!
